As mentioned in my previous post, I had an interview with a local reporter, here’s the video, and for those of you wondering what I really look like now as opposed to my profile picture that was taken 33 years ago, here’s the sad truth.

I forgot to mention earlier when I first posted this that all of the music playing in the background was done by me.

Nice interview Jerry. What you said was so true. I too was exposed to wood work in middle school and left it behind. Years later I dabbled in it. When I returned from Iraq in 2005 after a year tour of duty my psychologist urged that I start back into wood work. She was so right! It became my calm time, my release. As you said, what we make could possibly be around forever. I love the thoughts of that.

Excellent presentation Jerry. Come across as very likable and authentic. It seems people are always different in real time than in writing.

What happened to the Frankenstein scar?

Thanks Daniel, I think she did a great job. The scar happened when I took a fall in the middle of the night getting up to use the john.

So you called the Screen Actors Guild and told them you wanted to hire a “stand in” to do an interview. You asked for someone like George Clooney or Leo DiCaprio… Tough break that they sent you Earnest Borgnine! :)

Great interview Jerry, You made an excellent point about patience. I also had to learn it but as soon as I did my woodworking dramatically improved.

Thanks Roger, and you are too kind, I have seen your shop and I am a piker in comparison. BTW, thanks for posting all the dust collection stuff, I’m planning on reviewing it soon because I am still nipot set up properly.

It’s a convincing educated video Jerry. I feel like I should go out and try hand cut dovetails. You said it well, woodworking is not as easy as it looks, only to those who have never tried it. BTW, nice shop too.
PS. If I had known you look like this now I would of never buddied you. Just kidding, couldn’t resist.

Excellent video Jerry – LJs movie star of the month ! ;-) It’s amazing how much woodworkers have in common – patience – of which I had very little of until I saw my first wood lathe. Patience is now a rule, because something can go wrong real fast, especially at 2000rpm ! Thanks again for sharing.
